Biochemist rallies colleagues to publish results on the Web

SFGate has a

Piece on Pat Brown, a biochemist at Stanford University. He wants to raise about $20 million in foundation grants to bring together top scientists to review scientific research, and publish it on the Web -- for free.

\"A high school student in San Jose could read the latest paper in cell biology,\" he said. \"Scientists in the Third World could see scientific articles they can\'t afford. These people are totally disenfranchised from the latest evidence-based science.\"
